(If you have trouble with the link ask one of us and we will forward it to you)

Aitz Chaim/Great Falls Hebrew Community will hold Yizkor and concluding service starting at 5:00pm via zoom. We will forward the link to whoever requests it that day.

Schedule:
Yom Kippur
Congregation Beth Shalom online services:
Kol Nidre Sunday, September 27 at 7pm
Yom Kippur morning Monday, September 28 at 10am

Aitz Chaim/Great Falls Hebrew Community via zoom:

We encourage our community to join our zoom Yizkor as we will be reciting our community’s list. Bozeman will be switching to their own zoom meeting for their community’s Yizkor also at 5pm. They will be back to the online service at 5:45 for Ne’ilah – probably a little more formal than ours if you prefer that option.
